Zucchini Faux Gratin

August 23, 2010

Just about everything tastes better with cheese. This is a “faux gratin” — there’s lots of cheesy goodness, but the milk and flour and cheese are just layered on rather than mixed into a cheese sauce before baking. I also roasted the zucchini (see my last post for one idea of roasting veggies), but you could skip that step and sprinkle in some salt, pepper and whatever other seasonings you want.

You will need:

  • 2 medium zucchinis, washed and thinly sliced into rounds (roasted or raw)
  • 1/2 c shredded cheese
  • 2-3 T flour
  • 2-4 T milk
  • Salt and pepper

Then you…

  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Spray a small glass baking dish with non-stick spray. Line with a layer of zucchini. Sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper. Pour a little of the milk over. Sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Repeat the layering until you have used up your ingredients.
  4. Bake 25-30 minutes until the zucchini is cooked through and the cheese “sauce” is bubbly!
